How about traditional music played by the Grateful Dead and/or the Jerry Garcia Band.

Classic blues - Talk about Delta & Chicago blues and how it influenced Pigpen and the rest of the band.
Samson & Delilah
Spoonful
Little Red Roster
etc...

British sailing ballads was my first thought.
Jack-A-Roe
Lonesome Cabin Boy
etc...

Good luck with the paper.

I was thinking along these same lines, only following the path of traditional American music (bluegrass, spirituals, mountain music) and how JG evolved this music. Great path to follow, from his banjo bluegrass days, all the traditional tunes they covered (Mama Tried, Deep Elem, Peggy-O, Morning Dew, Bid You Goodnight), collaborations with Grisman later in life etc. Tie in Hunter's storytelling...
